      Regardless of the plot, this is a classic musical

      First of all, I want to explain that "My Fair Lady" is a song and dance love film released in 1964, so it is different from ordinary love films with a lot of song and dance scenes interspersed in the film. I personally like this kind of music and dance film very much, whether it is "The Sound of Music", "Chicago" or "High School Musical", "Beauty and the Beast", "La La Land", I like it very much, and I don't even understand most of them. I find all Indian musicals interesting. Not everyone...

      Adapted from Bernard Shaw's script Pygmalion, George Bernard Shaw can come up with such a mythical character as the title, which is really appropriate. When I went to Baidu Pygmalion, I felt what a literary giant is... Although I watched Breakfast at Tiffany's three times, I was severely face blind. Last week, when my English teacher showed us My Fair Lady, I just kept sighing, "Hey, it looks like Hepburn." Because Hepburn, who just appeared as a flower girl, has a very rustic appearance and...

      My Fair Lady from the Linguistic Perspective

      The film "My Fair Lady" is completely different from that of "Arrival". Advent tells that the future is science fiction. It integrates a lot of science and technology, and My Fair Lady brings us back to about a hundred years ago. In British society, the story will be told slowly in the real social background. With this film, I opened the door to sociolinguistics in linguistics. The first question we think about is what is society. Through the film, I think that society is a structure in...

      fair lady

      The beginning of reality, the end of fairy tales.

      At first I hated that flower girl. She's vulgar, low, like every nasty bottom person. But when she went to the professor to learn to speak, I changed my mind about her. She's just a joke to the professor, but she finds a way out of class and clings to it. She still behaved vulgarly, but I saw her self-esteem and self-love for herself.

      When she came back from the banquet, watching the professor and friends touting each other and...

      Let's talk about the relationship between the film's story and the phoneticians. The prototype of the protagonist Henry Higgins is the last century British phoneticist Henry Sweet and the more well-known phonetician Daniel Jones (phonetician). The name Jones is very familiar. He is the inventor of the DJ phonetic symbol and the first phonetic symbol system to record English. At the same time, he has recorded a lot of languages, including Cantonese. He can be regarded as the originator of...

      1964, USA, 47 minutes and 31 seconds, wall poster: Good quality and taste. Even in sloppy clothes, her tongue-in-cheek dialect, and her vulgar and unreasonable manners, she still couldn't hide Audrey Hepburn's angelic aura. She is not a Cinderella, but a princess hiding in the folk.

      Fortunately, it is rare to see such a vulgar character of Hepburn. I think it is not easy for her to practice such pronunciation. Men like elegant ladies. It is difficult to fall in love with vulgar flower girls. When that Spanish sentence or something appeared, I had an epiphany. It turns out that Blair's dream in GG is The rain in Spain...

    Movie plot

    The flower girl, Eliza Dolittle, is beautiful and smart, but she was born in a poor family. She goes to the streets every day to sell flowers to earn some money to support her father. One day, Eliza's vulgar accent caught the attention of the linguist Professor Higgins. The professor boasted that as long as he was trained, a flower girl could become a noble lady. Eliza felt that what the professor said was an opportunity for her, so...

    "My Fair Lady", adapted from the drama of the same name by the great writer George Bernard Shaw, was the number one topic in Hollywood that year. The musical of the same name has already caused a huge sensation on Broadway, and the movie version not only has superstar Hepburn and legendary director George Cukor joined, but the production cost of more than ten million US dollars is also rare at the time. "My Fair Lady" is an auditory...

    • Eliza Doolittle: I ain't dirty! I washed my face and hands before I come, I did.

    • Professor Henry Higgins: She's an owl, sickened by a few days of *my* sunshine.

    • Professor Henry Higgins: Mother!

      Mrs. Higgins: What is it, Henry? What's happened?

      Professor Henry Higgins: [quietly, bewildered] She's gone.

      Mrs. Higgins: Well, of course, dear, what did you expect?

      Professor Henry Higgins: What... what am I to do?

      Mrs. Higgins: Do without, I suppose.

      [pause]

      Professor Henry Higgins: And so I shall! If the Higgins oxygen burns up her little lungs, let her seek some stuffiness that suits her. She's an owl sickened by a few days of my sunshine. Very well, let her go, I can do without her. I can do without anyone. I have my own soul! My own spark of divine fire!

      [storms outs]

      Mrs. Higgins: Bravo, Eliza.
